Took this picture a few days ago, and thought it looked a good chance for someone to improve it. I don'tmind how it's edited, I just quite like it as a picture and wonder if it could be made better?

Is it me or does anyone noticea group of black pixels towards the top of the picture in the middle. I have checked through the other photos I took like this but couldn't find any stuck pixels in similar places. It's probably just a spot on the lens or something (for just this shot- it wasn't on any others))

Anyway, would love to see improvements, and thoughts of the black pixels at the top . . .

The black pixels are probably a bird - they quite often show up like that.

I've got quite a few pictures with those UFO's in them. Especially pictures taken at the coast. You could clone it out if it bothers you. I had to enlarge the picture to see it.

As for improving the picture, the balloons are so small in the shot that, IMHO, not much can be done. If you have some other pictures of the balloons that are larger or higher resolution, you could paste them in in place of the ones already there.

If you do have other shots of the balloons, how about posting one of them to give us something to work with.

Sammy, not many images are too poor to edit. Yes there are some, but for a bit of fun I wonder how you like this version.

Selected levels adjustments on the building and tree, cloned out the 'spaceship', and duplicated the balloons, resized them and Hue/Saturation adjustments to give a bit of variety.

Poor resolution on the larger balloons due to how small the available two were and reduced file for posting.

Hope you like it.

Stevekin.

Thanks stevekin I really like the idea there, it looks really nice.

I will look out for ballons in the future and try to capture them more in focus. . . .

Thanks
